Paul WalkerPaul Walker was traveling at over 100 miles per hour when the car he was in crashed.

The Fast and the Furious star died alongside his friend, Roger Rodas - who was driving - when their Porsche crashed and burst into flames in Santa Clarita, California on November 30.

A new report from the Los Angeles County Coroner released yesterday notes Roger was driving at an "unsafe speed" on the road - which has a designated limit of 45 miles per hour - and lost control of the car "for unknown reasons." After the car crashed into a tree and a lamp post "the vehicle was almost split in half ... the majority of the vehicle was also charred" by the fire which followed.

The report also states neither Roger, 38, nor Paul, 40, had alcohol, cocaine, marijuana or other impairing drugs in their systems. It has previously been found Paul died from a combination of traumatic and thermal injuries. The report also said the actor had been in a "pugilistic" stance at the time of the crash, meaning he had braced for impact.

Paul Walker and his family

Paul Walker's father made him promise not to do any more "daredevil stuff" in their last conversation before his death.

Paul Walker Sr. admits he was concerned about his son's daring activities and the last time he spoke to the Fast and the Furious actor, who was killed when the Porsche he was traveling in smashed into a pole after a charity car show in Santa Clarita, California on Saturday, he begged the 40-year-old star to be careful. "The last conversation we had, I sat there, I looked at him and I said, 'You know, I love you very much. I love all of you. And we're all very, very close. If anything was to happen to anybody in this family, it would be a rough deal.' I said, 'Promise me, no more daredevil stuff.' I said, 'If in your heart, you say, I can do this, then by all means, do it. If your mind says, maybe not. Then don't.' I looked at him, I said, 'Will you promise me that?' I said, 'You know, promises are a very important thing here, Paul.' I said, 'Say OK,' and he said, 'OK.' You know a lot of us, sometimes we make promises and get caught up in the moment and stuff like that, but I can tell I got to him. I can tell that I was very serious. Sometimes sons think of their fathers and their grandfathers as these bigger than life people," he said in an emotional interview with E! News.

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Obituaries

Paul WalkerPaul Walker and his friend were reportedly "not driving recklessly" when they were involved in a fatal car crash on Saturday.

The 40-year-old Fast & The Furious star passed away when the red Porsche Carrera GT, in which he was a passenger in with Roger Rodas, collided with a tree during a car show in Santa Clarita, California, that was organized to raise funds for victims of the recent typhoon in the Philippines and tornado in Indiana.

Jim Torp, who attended the event and knew Roger, told People.com that he did not think the duo were driving dangerously: "Roger was definitely behind the wheel. Roger slowly drove it out - he didn't take off recklessly. There were children around, after all. They were only gone for five or ten minutes and never came back... It was clear the car had hit two trees then finally hit a street lamppost. Parts of the car were strewn everywhere on the street, as far as 150 feet. I didn't see any skid marks. Where the car had crashed was on a long straightaway. How fast they were going, I don't know. Roger was not a reckless guy. He was a family man. He has a wife and two young children. He never did anything careless."
